This is Fire Safety Week. Steve Yotty is chief of Kalona’s Fire Department. He says they’re promoting checking batteries in smoke detectors, inspecting furnaces and using extension cords and in a safe way. Yotty also says it’s important to keep safety in mind while cooking. Yotty says they’ll be playing host some younger students from Kalona this week. He says they’ll be giving them a tour of the fire station and teaching them about fire prevention.
